W2kSecurityManager - User mapping possible without domain ?

Hello all,

we just try to to implement a remote Windows system into KM using a File system repository and the W2KSecurityManager (according to the online help here">here> )

The W2KSecurityManager seems to need a user mapping in the form of "<b>domain\user</b>". We do not have a domain, so i can not provide one.

When saving the user mapping only with "<b>user</b>", in the defaultTrace i find the following:

Failed to check W2K file system access (user XXXXX, permission
 node_list_children, resource /server1w, W2K path \
 User XXXXX does not have a domain

When trying to setup a network share from the portal server to the remote Windows filesystem in question using the following command in a DOS box, it works fine:

net use X: \Servershare password /user:Username

So the restriction of having to provide a domain seems to be needed (senseless ?)

only by the W2KSecurityManager.

Does anybody know how to use a mapping in the form of the "<b>user</b>" instead of "<b>domain\user</b>" with the W2KSecurityManager ?

Thank you !

    Hi Andreas,

    if the users do not belong to a domain they must be local users!?

    >> so the domain\user string will be <localcomputername>\user...

    The net use command nows about its own environment and can deal with the user only as it is using the internal set domain - the portal can't do that so it is necessary to provide the domain...
